Leveraging over 14 years extensive hands-on experience in this demanding translation industry, I am now running a SLV (Single Language Vendor) company staffed by a small group of veteran translators and technical specialists (focusing only on this unique language pair of English<>Chinese translation) to offer stronger support to our clients. As a highly focused professional Chinese translation team, we wish to be your choice vendor for all your EN<>CN services.

Doing business over Internet is associated with certain risks. When you assign a project to a freelance translator living in a country thousand miles & several time-zones away, you are kind of "betting" on whether he/she will and is able to finally return a up-to-standard job by due deadline as he/she agreed. Your only chance to win is to pick those who have outstanding qualifications and demonstrated professionalism. Translation is my FULL-TIME PROFESSION, and I treat it seriously as a TRUE BUSINESS with passion - that's how I established happy long-term cooperation with many demanding clients.
